I am going to be heading to AIB soon, and intend to apply as Aircrew (pilot). Can anyone tell me at what stage in the application process does a prospective pilot sit an aircrew medical/aptitude/psychometric tests and get given the green light as to whether they will be suitable to fly in the Navy? Is it at the AIB? Is there a supplementary set of tests/medical? If so, are they pre or post-BRNC? I ask as I have another job in the burner that has a time frame restricting the application, and I'd need to give the company (assuming I am successful) a yes or no by the 12th of November. If the Navy aren't able to give me a definitive answer by then I'd be inclined to take the commercial job (again, assuming my success). I would prefer to fly military, but I don't want to take the gamble by turning down the commercial rotary-wing job, and hold out for the Navy in case they give me a knock back... this would leave me right up sh*t creek minus a pair of paddles! Cheers!
